Eating Up With the Jones'
"Can't imagine what's happened to the Jones', " twittered the guest, "I'm sure they said they'd be here...."
"They're probably with us in spirit," the hostess reassured him, "Please, enjoy your dinner everyone!".............
"You must give me the recipe for this meat dish....best pork I've ever tasted! "
"Really?...It's an old.... family.... recipe."
A Cautionary Tail
It'd been the perfect Christmas gift.
Cute, funny - entertainment for the whole family.
It'd leaked a bit at first but that was soon fixed.
Later though, growing maintenance costs became problematic.
The novelty wore off. Taking care of it became a chore.
If only they'd remembered.....
A dog is for life, not just for Christmas.
